metal horse sculpture at Blenheim Palace



    • I’d think they’re there for a while, although didn’t get chance to read the notices next to them.

    • Something a bit different from the old history of the place. I love unusual sculptures like this too.

    • The sun did catch them really well – the horse looked like it had rainbows on. Definitely caught your eye as you walked in

  1. Those are lovely. Are they exhibits of the artwork of a particular artist?

    • They were by one artist, but I didn’t manage to get the name or read about the whys and wherefores. The joys of an impatient toddler.

    Fantastic artwork, I love the greyhound 🙂

    • It’s pretty realistic isn’t it. There was a lion which was really good too

    • They are, aren’t they? I loved them – although N wasn’t fussed and just dragged me off to the playground!

    • They’re at Blenheim Palace at the moment. Think there were about 6 of them, all different animals

    • Blenheim is great. I love all the different events there are…not just the house and gardens to see.

  3. These look amazing and so effective. I’d love one in the front garden. Maybe a dragon.

    Thank you for linking up

    • They’d be pretty cool in a garden – talking point, for sure. And a dragon could look brilliant – you could add a knight as well

    • Not sure what they were made of. They were certainly catching the light nicely

    • Yes, the colours really stood out on rainbow colours, and drew you over to them

    • Thanks, they really caught my eye. I do like unusual but not too way out artwork!

    • Definitely eye catching. The sun on them really drew you to them with the colours.

    • Thanks. I was trying to get pictures without other people in which was proving difficult.

    • Not often that you see something that’s a bit different, but not so off the wall that’s it’s just plain odd!

    • Well recognised. Not sure how long they’re here for but they’re nice to see as you walk into the playground area.

    • They were at Blenheim, in the gardens area. Something a bit different as you walk in to the play area!

    • They are. There were several more as well, but too many people around to get decent photos of them.

  4. Oh my! How cool! Where is this? I love finding treasures like this.

    • At Blenheim Palace in the pleasure gardens. On the way into the playground area. Nice to see something different alongside the (tad shabby) model replica houses

    These look wonderful. I bet they look lovely with the sun shining off them 🙂

    • They definitely caught the eye as we walked in. The rainbow colours that bounced off were lovely

  6. Is it ribbon or metal? So very effective and I wonder if there’s a special symbolism?

    Calling over from My Sunday Photo.

    • It was metal. I didn’t get the chance to read the artist notes beside them as N was dragging me off to the playground, but they were pretty effective as you walked in

    WOW this looks Fantastic!!! was it just made from different coloured bits of Metal? #MySundayPhoto

    • Yes, there were a few different ones, a gold coloured lion, and the silvery based ones. Really lovely in the sun
